The HTC One (M8) for Windows brings HTC’s flagship to Windows Phone. In terms of hardware, this version is the exact same as the Android model as it comes with a 5-inch display, dual 4-megapixel cameras, and a metal body. The smartphone runs on Windows 8.1.1, which has received only minor tweaks here.
- Excellent build
- Vibrant, sharp display
- Best speakers on the market
- Windows Phone is still lacking
- Mediocre main camera
- Minor setbacks with performance and battery life

If you're platform agnostic, though, it's best to avoid the many handicaps that continue to plague Microsoft's mobile OS.
